Coupled physics phenomena (like electrical heating, fluid structure interaction, and conjugate heat transfer) demand multiphysics, which I’ve written about previously in “What is Multiphysics?”. But what if you just have a simple analysis to do — one that has been simplified to the point where only a “single physics” (to coin a term) is considered? What benefits does multiphysics have for this?

Who loves coffee? That’s what I thought; most of you. I for one cannot go a day without fueling up on coffee. Now that fall is on its way, the cooler weather will require better insulation of my coffee when I take it to-go, in the name of a travel mug (i.e., a thermos). This leads me to wonder: how long will coffee stay warm inside a thermos if I bring it outside?

There’s a lot to be excited about for this year’s COMSOL Conference — and it’s just around the corner. We thought, what better way to give you a clearer idea of what to expect from the COMSOL Conference 2012, than with a video?

In these days of globalization, keeping the world connected is imperative. Information needs to pass as freely and quickly as possible in order to keep markets up-to-date with the latest news and to ensure that commerce can be conducted without hindrance (at least of the technical kind). So what do you do – look to the sky? The answer is no; in fact, 99% of this information is carried by undersea cables. These unsung heroes sit at the bottom of […]

If you’re a cynic (like I am sometimes), the term “multiphysics” might irk you. There’s only one set of physical laws, after all. There’s nothing “multi” about it. So what is multiphysics?

Many of you have upgraded to COMSOL version 4.3 by now and thanks, in part, to user feedback we have been able to make updates to fix bugs and other issues in this version of our software. Last week we released the second new product update for COMSOL 4.3.

It’s finally conference season – my favorite time of year. There is nothing quite like the rush of registrants coming in, the scheduling of minicourses to fulfill each attendee’s request for training, and finalizing the exhibit and poster session floorplan. Except actually attending the conference. Nothing beats that, and here’s why you’re invited to the COMSOL Conference:

The end of August marks the end of summer here in New England. Already nostalgic and unwilling to let the season go, I decided to look into some “beach physics”. In May we released a new solar radiation feature in our Heat Transfer Module that will be helpful in many solar applications — including how to avoid overheating on the beach, apparently. Here’s how engineers can stay cool on the beach.

There are some special events that we particularly care about and put tons of work into here in COMSOL, and these are our annual conferences. The events keep on expanding and this year everything will be even bigger and better! The conference will be held in Boston, MA October 3-5, Milan, Italy October 10-12, and in Bangalore, India November 2-3. We are very excited about the high quality and large volume of abstracts submitted for the COMSOL conference so far.
